Last month we created a Montessori Toddler room for Liam to transition into. You can find that post here. What I did not do, was go into detail on in that post. Including how to create a Montessori Toddler Room!
What is Montessori?
Here is a GREAT explanation of what Montessori is. The simple explanation, is a style of learning that fosters independence. Montessori at home consists of setting your child up to do things on their own. Such as having books and toys at their level. Low furniture, such as their bed that they can get in and out of on their own. Easily accessible hooks for clothing etc.
The Montessori Bed
Yes, Liam does have a King Sized bed. We were gifted a mattress from Purple.com last year. Honestly we went with a King Size bed, off chance we liked it more than our Avocado Mattress. However, having a King size bed has been great for those nights when Liam needs someone to fall asleep with him. I love that it is low enough to the ground that he can climb in and out on his own. I can’t stand those UGLY toddler rails.
We added these great book shelves from Ikea, they are actually a “photo ledge”. His Lollipop Baby Camera is mounted high enough that we can see his entire room. Don’t forget the personalized touch from Shop Love Found.
Shop Love Found was created by a mama who was wanting a minimal and modern birth stat print for her daughter. They have definitely achieved the perfect birth stat and baby name print!
Lighting, Art and Toy Storage
His light fixtures are from Amazon, I loved how simple and modern they are. While they can be turned on and off from the cord, the way Liam’s room is set up, he is able to reach the light switch by the door.
This super fun Highland Cow Print is from Target, I was excited when I was able to find it in store!
Last but not least, don’t forget our favorite SWOOP BAGS! We are able to keep toys out of site and out of mind when we rotate them between being stored in his room and out in our new play room!
